RN74 Celebrates Julia Child’s 100th Birthday This August With Inspired Tasting Menu

RN74 Julia Child Dinner Seattle“I enjoy cooking with wine.  Sometimes I even put it in the food I’m cooking.”  - Julia Child

Julia Child is a beloved cultural icon who revolutionized the palate of our country. She demystified French cuisine for a generation of home cooks, injecting humor and a no-dish-is-too-complicated confidence into the kitchen of the millions who used her cookbooks and watched her on TV.  In honor of what would be her 100th birthday on August 15th, 2012, RN74 is offering a tasting menu throughout the month of August as a tribute to her impressive influence on both American and French food. The menu is inspired by Child’s culinary sensibilities: classic French cuisine, reinterpreted with a modern twist, made with love and the freshest seasonal ingredients, and of course, masterfully paired with French wines.

Additionally, the downtown Seattle restaurant will be raffling off copies of Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking (volume 1),” and the new biography of Julia Child, “Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child.” Diners who order the Julia Child Tasting Menu on August 15th will receive a raffle card for a chance to win one of the books.
